Old Home Town - 100 years ago

January 8, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for Jan. 8, 1909: “There remains uncertainty about the future of the electric line here. A local group says a Kansas City group is unreliable and the KC group says local people lack the funds and experience. … Word is that area railroads are about to raise their fare rates from 2 cents to 2.5 cents per mile. Passengers are expecting the new rate and while they are not happy they realize they have little choice but to pay it.”
